Our Farm

Stage of Idea conceptual stage

Explain your idea in details:

Having the advantage of good land and plenty of water I do not see why not practice Agriculture to its fullest potential using irrigation with goals of producing more yields and product and conserving the environment. Our farm will aim at producing food crops to attain food security, preservation of soil fertility(by practising mixed farming,crop rotation and other agricultural activities that conserves and improves soil fertility) and conserving the environment, providing employment and access to locally affordable produce, processing other produce(crops and animal products) to minimize wastage. And its vision is a tomorrow with no cases of starvation and malnutrition in children providing for our home country and export other Agricultural produce to area in need. As the world population keeps growing. Our farm will also act as a back up for local farmers who mostly depend on rainfall(rain fed) and other people who farms for food once ayear ,when the rain fails . While practicing crop production and animal production(mixed farming) , our farm will be able to use the manure from the animals using it in crops and use the remains of other crops as animal food. And making green fertilizer out of the waste and animals manure. Our farm! For you, for me and for all.

Plans for implementation and sustainability

To implement this will need the community involvement. It will need a big deal of capital and funding to put it at working stage to purchase land,buy irrigation equipments for irrigation scheme, to buld farm facilities eg poultry houses, cattles and goats houses etc,seedlings and more other resources needed. However once established it will give back the income invested and will continue to provide for itself. It will also need Agriculture expertise to collaboratively work together with the same goals. Our farm will be a supplier of agri commodities from fresh to processed. It will be supplying to local business people, manufacturing companies, Hotels plus exporting agri commodities. Our farm will also be direct selling other commodities.

I am 21 year old malawian lady living in mangochi, malawi. Growing on that family were my parents did there very best to send me to school even though they never did they gave me a starting point and taught me I can make it even if they did not. As a girl living in this village in mangochi, I have seen alot girls of my age and younger getting pregnant and drooping out of school. However I with my parents, my passion for a change and above all my faith in God i managed to overcome all the challenges and continuing with my education. I am holder of malawi school certificate of education My motivation in life are the struggles that I have faced and have seen my parents facing because of poverty and ofcource not out of it yet. I started dreaming of something big, big enough to pull me out, my family and other people in the same situation. Since I have been hungry before and in poverty I do not wish or want anyone else to be in it. So I made it my life mission to work hard and become someone who will be helping other people, its because I can't stand to see people in extreme poverty. As that's my life mission I do my best to be active and searching for opportunity. I have worked as a voluntary youth advocate for girl child education, family planning and sexual reproductive health. Before that I was member of a local organization and now I am doing certificate in clinical medicine . I am still striving to work for social change.

I think you are doing well! Congratulations on your idea.
Young today, we are all called to contribute with our ideas, our projects, for the advancement of this world. Each of our ideas can bring change for our society. This shows the need to plan and structure our project ideas well. We must take care to think well and define our goals. Why do we have this idea? How will we do to keep it running? What impact will our business have on society? We must therefore put the emphasis on the structuring of our project ideas since, in addition to the presentation and realization of our project ideas, we must think about its sustainability and its contribution to sustainable development.
This is my support for you!!! Keep going with your idea Our Farm.

Hello, I had a great time reading your proposal for your farm. I think it's a great idea, but needs more development. You could star small with a clean energy generator to purify water, or come up with a greenhouse plan in order to increase the success of your farm. Here is a website with information about clean energy that you might find helpful: https://www.epa.gov/energy

I wish you the best in the competition and in your future!

If you have time, we would really appreciate it if you could comment on our project entry at entrepreneurship-campus.org/ideas/28/18345/

Thank you so much,
Angela, Sarah, and Miru

Once again, to add to all my other comments on your idea, I am sharing with you further tips on traits of being a successful entrepreneur and how to acquire them.

If you are pursuing a dream for becoming a young successful entrepreneur you should know that there is no given recipe for becoming like one of the famous persons that inspire and motivate you all the time. However, there are some characteristics, which successful people share, that can be considered as the main ingredients or the salt and pepper of champion entrepreneurs.
History has shown that some people were at the right time at the right moment, while entrepreneurs have confirmed something else. No matter what the moment was, the ones who took risks succeeded.

According to entrepreneur.com successful people have the following traits:
Determined, Not afraid to take risks, Confident, Constant learners, Know how to deal with failure, Passionate about their businesses, Highly adaptable, Understand money management, Networking experts, Great at selling and promoting

My [email protected] Lekeleni, Happy Month of September you. Two months into voting and commenting stage in the Youth Citizen Entrepreneurship competition, I really appreciate every one of us for how far we have come in this competition and still going. Once more, in addition to my previous comments on your idea, I am again sharing an article from the campus competition on the need to focus on support each other ideas and projects with comments.

Comments are an important part of the Youth Citizen Entrepreneurship Competition. One single comment is the first step for getting involved with the Entrepreneurship Campus community.

They help the campus community to be more dynamic and interactive. They create bonds between the campus members and they can also be the ground for dialogue and even long lasting friendships. In our daily life, we all enjoy comments that other people leave on our posts, either in social media posts or in blog posts. A comment, even a smiley face has the power to makes us feel good.

But, in the case of the campus competition, besides the fact that comments make us feel good and confident, comments are really helpful, because they can also provide free advice to our ideas and projects.

Also as highlighted by a recent article in the blog section of the campus competition on the importance of comments, two out of the five points of the Personal Activity Indicator are the following
1. The entrant personal engagement among the Entrepreneurship Campus community by commenting and giving advice to other entries.
2. The number of meaningful comments the entrant idea and project has received from the online Entrepreneurship Campus community.

Therefore, we must think about comments as a tool that can bring value to the person that reads it. It is true that this is a competition, but our ideas and projects will continue their development even when this edition of the Youth Citizen Entrepreneurship Competition will end.

As a campus member, each of us would like to read meaningful suggestions and opinions about our specific entry. Hence, we on our part must post honest, unbiased, helpful, and unique comments on others projects and ideas. How

After reading someone else idea or project, you can express your opinion about the entry, congratulate the user for his or her initiative and efforts, or suggest something that would help the further development of the entry. Every single comment we post must be unique just like each of the ideas and projects is.

I hope this benefits our activities in the campus. In view of the above, I am requesting you to please consider voting and commenting on my idea Eduheal should you come online soon @ https://www.entrepreneurship-campus.org/ideas/26/17805/

Thank you for supporting my idea with your votes and comments

Greetings! Again best of luck to everyone!and here share encouraging words with all campus entrepreneurs intending to grow, it is important for us to sportively accept failures as different possibilities.As great entrepreneurs we have to do this and tell others they need not worry about failures.In fact the best of entrepreneurs do follow their ideas/projects at the cost of repeated failures,because every missed steps will get us closer to success.we must be willing to take certain risks,so that we learn from our mistakes and become capable enough to answer questions correctly to make investors feel comfortable with our dedicated ideas/projects.This shows us why if someone approaches us as entrepreneurs in future with an idea's project,we wun't immediately reject it as ineffective but work together in an innovative way by permitting him/her to think around the idea and determine if it really makes sense and if something goes wrong we wunt discourage that person,instead we will be grateful for learning something new,gain experience and learn from such meetings like this that linked us all here(entrepreneurshipcampus.org!)Thanks be to them again,for this campus has encouraged us all to take more risks by analyzing every aspect of that risk.You all are welcomed to view sustainable Mobile tap bartending cart,link

It is important to have a clear sense of mission. Think about who will it benefit, what difference will it make, and how are you going to go about it? It helps to determine the level of social impact in the short and long term and how it will be measured and evaluated. This will also help in reaching the right audience and identifying your marketing and networking strategies.

Thank you Blossom Odor for your positive comment aswel, I will see if I can be able to take the online trainings , I wish to its just that internet access here seems to a bit of a challenge. But I will do my best.
And your suggestion is a good one, though I have included that other foods and products will be processed for keeping and minimize wastage, I think I overlooked at ground level the wastage by the consumers . Thanks. I will see to it that the idea should cover that aspect aswel.

I will check your idea too, and if you think my idea is a good one and that it will help people consider voting.

Please not that this plan is not quite different from the requirements of the Youth Citizen Entrepreneurship Competition.

I honestly suggest that before you submit your idea or project, please ask yourself these questions and even if you have submitted your idea, do remember that we still have opportunity to refine our ideas and resubmit. I hope that you find this beneficial to your idea.
